Cat Rock faces southwest, and so it's dark rock receives plenty of sun. Since it is also fairly well protected from wind, head here when its cold out. You'll also want to bring a crashpad...one of the easier problems here (Cat Corner) has a pretty bad landing and many of the others top out at about 15 ft.
Directly north of Wollman Rink, just to the left (west) of a staircase. Take the path from the stairs to avoid stepping in dog and homeless man shit.
